Manihot wild species as source of resistance to cassava green mites.

Abstract

Wild cassava genotypes presented lesser fecundity of cassava green mites (Mononychellus tanajoa in relation to the cultivated species (Manihot esculenta)), selected as resistant to semi-arid conditions in Northeast Brazil. These results suggest the presence of high levels of source of resistance within wild species of Manihot.
